“For students starting a 4-year degree, half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.”
This was one of the startling facts I learnt recently from a YouTube post discussing the rate of change and innovation that has occurred around the world and is predicted for the future.
It included other amazing stats like the 25% of India’s population with the highest IQ’s ……. is greater than the total population of the USA!
And, “China will soon become the Number #1 English speaking country in the world”, along with, it took 38 years for the radio to reach a market audience of 50 million, 13 years for TV, and 2 years for Facebook to reach an audience of 50 million.
Both these projections seem amazing but also plausible to me, but what if someone had told us this 30 years ago? Would we have believed it or even done things differently?
